What Are Soap Nails?

Soap nails may not involve actual bubbles, but they exude a clean and pristine appearance that’s hard to resist. This trend revolves around starting with a perfectly groomed nail base – trimmed, filed, and buffed – and then accentuating it with a super glossy finish. Think of it as the “no makeup, makeup” trend for nails.

Whether you opt for a pink see-through finish or a milky-nude hue reminiscent of milk nails, the key element is the ultra-sleek and glossy appearance that mimics the look of freshly bathed nails.

How to Get The Look

Achieving the soap nail look is akin to embracing a low-key yet sophisticated style. The focus lies not on intricate nail art but on revealing the natural beauty of your nails in a polished manner. Similar to a Russian Manicure, this trend emphasises the importance of prepping the nail bed to perfection.

Spending time on nail and cuticle care is paramount to ensuring a flawless finish. Prioritise the health of your nails, cuticles, and skin to achieve the coveted dewy appearance from the base of your hands to the tips of your nails.

Incorporating a hand scrub or indulging in a deep moisturising treatment can help attain that smooth and shiny finish reminiscent of soap nails.

Nurturing Strong, Healthy Nails

To achieve the coveted soap nail look, strong and healthy nails are essential. Incorporating ProPlenish marine collagen into your beauty routine can help strengthen nails from within, promoting their resilience and vitality.

Additionally, maintaining a balanced diet rich in essential nutrients, such as vitamins A, C, and E, as well as biotin and omega-3 fatty acids, can contribute to nail health.

By nurturing your nails from the inside out, you can ensure they are primed for showcasing the timeless elegance of soap nails.
